"Stab My Back" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
Now we're broken on the floor
She just wants me to share her
It hasn't been this way before
She just wants me to dare her

The phone rings
And she screams
Stab my back
It's better when I bleed for you
Walk on me
It never was enough to do

I can't get past her
Falling faster
True.
It hasn't done a lot for you

And every time he held you close
Yeah, were you thinking of me
When I needed you the most
Well I hope that you're happy

The phone rings
And she screams
Stab my back
It's better when I bleed for you
Walk on me
It never was enough to do

I can't get past her
Falling faster
True
It's better when I bleed for you

I hope that love he gave you
Was just enough to save you
You nearly broke my heart
Just look at what you're tearing apart

Stab my back
It's better when I bleed for you
Walk on me
It never was enough to do

I can't get past her
Falling faster
True
It hasn't done a lot for you

It's better when I bleed for you
It never was enough to do
It hasn't done a lot for

    General CommentI basically can't get over this song ever since my ex-boyfriend and me got into an arguement, and he said he just wanted me to know that I amde him feel exactly what this song suggests. The best way I can describe this song is to say what happened with me and him: My ex-boyfriend did something to make me very upset, and I guess to spite him, I cheated on him. And when he found out about it, he was obviously upset, which is the guy's part of this song:

    I hope that love he gave you
    was just enough to save you
    You nearly broke my heart
    Just look at what you're tearing apart

    The girl in the song broke his heart by [cheating] on him or something along those lines, you know? And then, for the girls' behalf: I had reason to cheat. I didn't do it randomly. He did a lot of things to hurt my feelings, too, although nothing can justify cheating in my opinion. And since my ex-boyfriend lives far away, we mostly can only talk on the phone, and we argue a lot, and most of the time, I'm first to lose my temper:

    Stab my back,
    it's better when I bleed for you
    Walk on me,
    it never was enough to do

    I think that the girl is saying that if she's going to get hurt at all, it would be better if she were hurt by him. That's how I feel about my ex. I mean, obviously, none of us want to get hurt, but there will always be that one person that we would rather hurt us than anyone else. It's like a really effed up sense of comfort, and I think that's what the girl feels.

    And ultimately, I think that this song reflects a couple breaking each others hearts from misunderstandings. Now, they're so busy fighting with eachother and being angry at eachother, that neither will be the bigger person and admit to mistakes. =)

    That's just one theory. Really

    General CommentYes first comment, I only liked 2 songs on their previous album, but this album is so amazing and this song no exception.
    I think this song is about he fell in love with a girl, and than she backstabbed him and went with another guy.

    General CommentIt's also about how she went off with this other guy, however, she's not happy, and she's admitting she was wrong to make that decision.

    General CommentThe song is all about a girl who thought she was completely unsatisfied with a relationship and left the boy. She had a new love but relized that he wasnt what she wanted. The first boys heart was broken but this song is him spiteing her for what she had done to him. It makes complete sense if you understand the message behind the lyrics.

    General CommentI think this song means that he had a girlfriend that broke up with him to be with another guy and he's thinking if she's thinking about him.

    General Commentyeah it's supposed to sound like that plosive sound p and b. here its the b. sounds like the words are being spat out. I think she calls him desperately wanting him back.

    General Commentand she screams,
    "Stab my back, it's better when I bleed for you
    Walk on me, it never was enough to do"
